Hampstead man faces extradition today

July 24, 1997

A Hampstead man is expected to be extradited today from North Carolina, where he was arrested on a Maryland warrant charging him with violating a court protective order and assaulting his estranged wife at their Carroll County home.

Bruce K. Solomon, 38, is accused of using scissors to cut about 6 inches of his wife's hair July 15, after he had tried to bind her hands and mouth with duct tape, according to charging documents filed the next day.

Her brother-in-law, who lives nearby, was summoned by the couple's daughter. He arrived and kicked in a bedroom door to chase Solomon away before police arrived, police said.

A court order of protection had been issued a week earlier in Carroll County Circuit Court, barring Solomon from entering the couple's home until Jan. 28.

Hampstead Police Sgt. E. Russell Horne alerted officers in Person County to look for Solomon at his parents' home north of Durham. He was arrested there without incident Monday.
